The Wise One

We had a leadership meeting today at work. The VP who presented spoke eloquently about striving for wisdom. At one point in his presentation he got personal…

Mr. B: I practiced law for 22 years, was quite successful and managed to quickly rise up the ranks. When I came here I also managed to find success and the opportunity to rapidly ascend. From time to time people ask me how I’ve able to be so successful and get to the position of leadership where I find myself today. And you know, I don’t think they’re asking for advice on how to do the same, I think they’re really wondering, “How the hell?”
